Gun control votes are "only the beginning" of Obama's push for gun control

As if it isn't enough that Obama is pushing state and federal gun control laws, now we are told that is only the beginning.  Of course, there are also the judges that are strongly against people being able to defend themselves.  But apparently there will be even much more than that.  By the way, Thursday will see a number of rallies around the country for more gun control.  From the Associated Press:

Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday the expected upcoming Senate votes on gun control are only the beginning of the White House's fight. 
The fate of gun control legislation is unclear. A vote on a Senate bill, including expanded background checks and harsher penalties for gun trafficking, is expected next month.
The White House also has been pushing for limits on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, but those provisions won't be part of the Senate bill. Instead they are to be offered as amendments, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says they don't have enough support to pass.
"That doesn't mean this is the end of the process. This is the beginning of the process," Biden said during a conference call organized by Mayors Against Illegal Guns pushing for the gun control measures. 
"The American people are way ahead of their political leaders," Biden argued. "And we, the president and I and the mayors, intend to stay current with the American people." 
The conference call included thousands of gun control supporters ahead of Thursday's National Day to Demand Action organized by the mayors group and other gun control proponents. Organizers said more than 140 events were scheduled in 29 states, timed to reach lawmakers while they are in their home districts on spring break. . . .

Tell me that those bastards Biden and Obama are not trying to "gin up" fear amoung law abiding gun owners! They make very provacative statements and then don't elaborate on their meaning and let us stew about it for weeks on end. It seems tio me that they are running out of options. If they step way out of bounds (again) perhaps someone will have the nerve to bring forth imeachment proceedings against one or both of them.
